“Auster” des Dragons de Soie is our forever/heart horse and everyone who meets her understands why. This Dutch reg’d, French Imported FHANA Friesian Mare is EXTRA SPECIAL! Auster has been a daily part of our lives for years. She has given us many beautiful foals that have gone on to live full lives excelling in dressage and driving. Auster is being retired from breeding. She is only 15 years old and we feel its “her time” now!
What we are seeking is a special person who wants a horse to BOND with, to grow a PARTNERSHIP with. A person who cherish’s the time spend grooming and being a friend as much as riding with their horse. Seeking someone who is a balanced rider with a confident and calm demeanor. Someone who is looking to further their riding skills and develop even more ability with a special horse. Seeking someone that will put forth a true connection with their horse from a natural prospective regardless of the discipline they ride.
Auster has been ridden but due to being a broodmare mostly, would be considered “green” and needs more training. She would excel as a lower level dressage mount, even western dressage, possible driving prospect, or amazing trail partner who could potentially work in ACTHA or competitive trail events. We are not limiting who future abilities.
Auster is a solid 16hh but feels several inches taller due to her high head carraige and large build. She has solid bone structure and powerful movement. She is laid back and easy going with great manners in the field or the barn – has no vices! She can be awake under saddle and ready to be a forward mount but no non-sense crazy stuff (though she needs to be re-started/tuned up).
She is the sister to Teade 392 Sport from Iron Spring Farm and the daughter of the late Nanning 374. We would consider offering Embryo Transfers from her but we will not ask her to carry any more foals herself.
If you are seeking a horse that is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be a learning partner, stepping stone, or just share a part of your life for a while then please inquire. We look forward to speaking with many special people in our search to find our amazing mare a partnership to let her shine even more!
We will require pictures of facility, references and videos of you riding/handling a horse before an introduction will be arranged. Please understand we are not trying to be rigid – we just know what we want for Auster and don’t want to waste our time or yours. Looking forward to this next step in Auster’s Life Adventure!
